Date of publication:  February 2, 1989 – Pittsburgh Press

Location of article: Google News

Summary: The article talks about a move by the federal government in 1989 to stop people who have a mental illness or intellectual disability from being placed in nursing homes

My thoughts:  This is something I want to look closer at and see where things stand with this issue in the present day.
